Oops, Factor is doing it again!

The Fox reality show is shedding another judge. Britney Spears is stepping down from her post after a single season, a source close to the show confirms. Reports suggest she’s quitting because she wasn’t going to be asked back anyway (which is sort of like saying you broke up with somebody who stopped returning your texts). She’ll follow departing judge L.A. Reid, who quit the show last month. TMZ, presumably quoting Team Spears, broke the story with the standard “wants to focus on her music” explanation.

Factor’s ratings dropped significantly »
